My Best Friend in the Kitchen

Other than the obvious...stove...refrigerator...ice cream maker (lol)....what is your best friend in the kitchen? When I got married I had no idea that this little creature would become my new best friend. Now I have to say other than a knife and maybe a frying pan, this gets the most use of any of my kitchen gadgets. Introducing....The Vidalia Onion Chopper.



Some of my love for this might stem from our insatiable craving for what we call "Allison's Salsa". Consisting of chopped onions, tomatoes and avocados, it can be time consuming to make. Not with my dear friend the onion chopper! I simply slice each veggie and then chop away! It is so handy AND keeps me from crying while I chop onions! This is seriously the best twenty bucks you can spend!

Due to it's popularity in our family and for all who are now addicted....
Allison's Salsa or Gualsa
1 avocado
2 roma or plum tomatoes
1/3 cup red onion
1/3 cup feta cheese
2 Tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
2-4 Tbsp Red Wine Vinegar
1 Tbsp chopped cilantro
Chop veggies....mix and enjoy!! (I add the EVOO and Red Wine Vinegar to taste)

Ohhh Laura! I too am in love with my chopper!! A friend gave me mine & then a few months later I found another one at a garage sale for 10cents!!!!! I thought I'd pass it on to my mom...BUT I ended up using that 2nd one so much that I kept it :) LOL!!!
